NEW YORK.- The Maritime Art sale at Christie's in New York totaled $2,380,875, with Night Suspect, a Montague Dawson canvas, leading the sale at $241,000. Marie Kotsonis, Head of Sale, and Gregg Dietrich, Senior Specialist, Maritime Department, Christie’s Americas, said: “We were once again pleased with the results of our sale, especially the high prices paid for Montague Dawson which illustrates Christie’s continued worldwide leadership in his market. We also welcomed the wide variety of American maritime art in the sale, led by Bradford’s Sunset glow on sea and land. The American maritime art, along with the American maritime folk objects, were well received at sale and neatly dovetailed Americana Week here at Christie’s earlier this month. In the nautical antique section, we were particularly pleased with the performance of the humidor and the sandbagger Truant model.”
